The main aspects of this design project were to keep the look simple and casual, with a modern and high class touch and with emphasis on the reception desk.
Masader Arabian decided to open a branch in Egypt and therefore purchased a floor of an apartment building. The Project Director, Mohammed Moktader was looking for an architectural company that would remodel and convert the apartment into an office. The two room apartment would have to be converted to an office with a reception, exhibition and waiting room, General Manager’s room, meeting room and rooms for the employees. The client was looking for a modern yet subtle look.

International advertising and communications firm Havas worked with TPG Architecture for more than two years to identify an appropriate space in Manhattan into which the industry leader could move its creative and media staff. The client ultimately chose seven floors, totalling 260,000SF, at 200 Hudson Street. The new office brings together nearly 1,000 staff from Havas Worldwide and agency groups Havas (formerly Euro RSCG), Havas Media (formerly MPG), Tonic, Adrenaline and Socialistic agencies that had been in disparate locations throughout New York City.

The community centre Máj is located in the biggest 1980s mass-housing settlement in České Budějovice, an ethnically and socially mixed neighbourhood. In the Czech Republic, one third of the population lives in prefab panel settlements built during the socialism era; after 1989 (the fall of the Soviet bloc), there has been a lack of activities solving problems in these areas. The Máj settlement has an increased concentration of the Roma population, who were evicted into the settlement during the 80s and 90s; the district has been the site of tension and several riots.

The building site is situated at the intersection between Hamburg’s lively downtown and its urban landscape that is rich in water and mature trees. It is at the transition from city to nature, and the gateway building to the bustling metropolitan core.
The horizontal striped facade with its floating “eyes” celebrates the view onto this unique context. A public park in front of the building continues the design strategy of the facade into the landscape. The “eyes” in the facade and the platforms in the park enable the places to meet and contemplate.

Elegant and iconic, the new headquarters of the FIM (International Motorcycling Federation) had to wait ten years before taking shape on a site in the outskirts of Geneva where road and railway meet.
It was in 2006 that LOCALARCHITECTURE and Bureau d’Architecture Danilo Mondada won the competition (conducted by the MEP – Mandat d’Études Parallèles – parallel development selection process) for the extension of the International Motorcycling Federation’s main headquarters in Mies in the canton of Vaud. Following a change of administration at the FIM the project was abandoned. A new selection procedure with invited architects was launched in 2013, with a modified functional programme. At this point the mandate was awarded to LOCALARCHITECTURE.

The basis of this project was the desire to create a building in which all offices are well-ventilated, have natural light and take advantage of Guadalajara’s good climate, rendering air conditioning unnecessary.

KASIKORN Business-Technology Group is undergoing a major transformation to support the arrival of the new “FinTech” digital banking era. With this industry-wide revolution, KASIKORN Business-Technology Group recognizes the urgency to change its way of working to suit the more modern and seamless culture that is native to its growing tech savvy community.

Located in the rural setting of Nhill, Victoria, Hindmarsh Shire Council Corporate Offices is a technologically advanced Corporate Civic and Administration Centre with Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) principles at the core of the building’s design intent.
Completed in 2014 the precinct re-uses the existing 1960’s building and encapsulates it within its new contemporary built form. The building was inspired by the town’s identity as a hub of wheat production with steel storage silos and agricultural sheds dotting the landscape. The centre’s form and restrained material palette of timber, steel and glass gives subtle references to the local agricultural context; utilising the craftsmanship of the folded metal inherent in the silos in the form of locally sourced steel and zinc finishes along the building’s exterior.
